LOL Very true. Of course you can go to an Interstate clover leaf and race around it for a while. BGRIN

But I can ride year round!

Had family members from Broward come for a visit to the Motor City. Came home from work, beautiful April day, maybe 70 degrees; they had turned furnace on, cranked heat up to 85, were wearing our winter coats and gloves!! What the hell?
One thing; used to have 500 Kawasaki 2 stroke 3 cyl. On a crisp 20 degree day= BIG POWER!!!!

I have a 95 Thunderbird. I had the engine blue printed and did the 6 speed , Speed Triple cams etc and it was an easy affair. just a matter of removing the spacer and pressing on the new gear. It made some difference as far as Miles per tank of gas alright !!! Very happy I did it when I had the engine done
